How and when is my child assessed?

The English Department assesses pupils in Key Stage 3 every half-term, following the Lancashire Assessment model. Over the course of an academic year, we assess reading and writing skills through a range of tasks, culminating in an end-of-year examination. Pupils use skills books and assessment books.
